Magpies beat Eels in Morata offseason scrap


TALAPIA Magpies halfback Stanley David and centre Moses Yomba helped their side beat the Eastern Eels 26-4 yesterday in the Morata Offseason rugby league.
The Morata Offseason round seven fixture at the Kone Tigers Oval saw both sides commit their fair share of handling errors thanks largely to the brutal defence as well as the hard, uneven surface.
The Magpies gritted their way to a 22-point win largely thanks to David’s effort at first receiver, who guided Pies around the park and ensured his outside backs had ample ball to test the Eels defence.
Eels coach Junior Immanuel said his side put in a great defensive effort in the opening 40 minutes to trail 6-4 at the break but they were guilty of switching off in the second stanza letting in four tries.
